In my view, Black History Month is a time to reflect on the black experience. It is one filled with unspeakable pain and incredible resilience. No matter how hard we fall, we get back up again. With that in mind, I’ve compiled a list of songs that define our struggle.

  1. A Change Is Gonna Come Sam Cooke
  2. People Get Ready The Impressions
  3. Keep On Pushing The Impressions
  4. Choice Of Colors The Impressions
  5. Mississippi Goddam Nina Simone
  6. Respect Yourself The Staple Singers
  7. We Shall Overcome
  8. Lift Every Voice And Sing
